Great article in this week's Guardian newspaper
about the fact that spies and agents are de riguer
again in Television.
TV critic Mark Lawson, who's often on the Newsnight review show, identifies the plethora of spy-related shows that UK TV viewers can look forward to this autumn: the new season of Homeland, a new five-parter called London Spy
which - as Lawson notes - immediately draws comparisons perhaps with London Match,
the first Bernard Samson novel; plus there's a new adaptation of Joseph Conrad's The Secret Agent.
The future BBC SS-GB adaption is also referenced but is incorrect, in that filming is starting this year but it is not scheduled for broadcast in 2015. Sadly, we have to wait a little longer!
